About Us

About us

Women’s Aid is the national charity working to end domestic abuse against women and children.

We have been at the forefront of shaping and coordinating responses to domestic violence and abuse through practice for almost 50 years. We empower survivors by keeping their voices at the heart of our work, working with and for women and children by listening to them and responding to their needs.

Women’s Aid was founded on women’s struggle against patriarchy, sexism and male violence and grew out of the Women’s movement in the 70’s and 80’s. Today we take an intersectional approach to our work to end domestic abuse and stand with other feminist organisations leading the way in eradicating Violence Against Women and Girls.

Our impact

Women’s Aid is a lifesaving federation of frontline domestic abuse services, supporting women and children at the most challenging times of their lives. The power of us together, as a network of services united to support survivors of domestic abuse, is formidable. Together we help save lives every day.

What we do 

From campaigning to providing frontline services, our goal is a world where domestic abuse is no longer tolerated.
